Holiday Celebrations

The community celebrates many holidays with events at the clubhouse—refer to the Newsette and the website for exact dates and times. If you’d like to propose and organize an activity for a holiday that isn’t represented, contact the Club.

Easter Bunny Brunch
The annual Easter Bunny celebration is held the week before Easter and includes two hours of a pancake breakfast, along with a craft, games and prizes, pictures with the Easter Bunny, and of course, finding Easter EGGS!!! Everyone is invited to attend to help make this a special and fun event!

Halloween
An adults-only dance is held the Saturday before Halloween. Come in costume for this fun celebration for the grown-ups!Kids in the community get some action at Halloween as well, with the annual “Trunk or Treat” celebration. Parents decorate their cars for the holiday, and children come in costume. Each car owner brings treats to distribute to the little “Trunk-or-treaters” as they safely walk through the Clubhouse Parking Lot. Other treats and fun activities are part of this fun night, which takes place shortly before October 31st each year.

New Years Eve
Looking for a great way to ring in the New Year? Put on your party clothes and celebrate with everyone at the Clubhouse. Each year, the Clubhouse has an informal gathering — revelers BYOB and appetizers to share. (The Clubhouse is close to home and you’ll be partying with neighbors and friends.) Join us for music, dancing, hats, horns, noisemakers and more.

Saint Patrick’s Day Dinner
The Saint Patrick’s Family Dinner Buffet is usually held the Sunday before Saint Patrick’s Day. Come on down to party at the Clubhouse. Typical menus include corned beef and cabbage, shepherd’s pie and hot dogs for the children. Each family brings a dessert to share, and coffee and tea are available. Irish music sets the mood for this BYOB gathering. Tickets may be obtained through the Club Office, Clubhouse Committee Members or from the Teen Council Members.

Winter Holiday Events
During the holiday season, join us for our annual holiday tree/menorah lighting party, during which Teen Council members sponsor various Craft Workshops for the children to create holiday ornaments. Hot chocolate and cookies (please bring some of your own) are available for all to enjoy, and make sure you bring enough to share with Santa Claus.

With the help of the Teen Council, Santa does his best to satisfy special holiday requests from the children of Highland Lakes. To help him achieve his goal, he has provided specific instructions for any children looking to send him letters via regular mail:

• Crying is overrated — turn that frown upside down.

• All requests must include a self-addressed, stamped envelope

• Letters to Santa must be placed in the special delivery mailbox located in the Clubhouse

• Please print or type your notes to Santa; his eyesight isn’t what it used to be

• Watch the Newsette for the December deadline.
